Book 2 in the Underdogs Series has been released! Get it here.
Alice is in a coma, Malcolm is missing... and Ian is trying to keep his cool under the pressure of finals. Can’t he just catch a break? Doesn’t seem like it, after getting bitten by the bug species taking over the school, and... hearing one of the bugs talk? Is this it? Has he cracked? Or is there something more sinister happening here?
Eh, it’s probably just a bunch of weird bugs, right?
Book 2 of the Underdogs Series
No more waiting! Get it today!
In the midst of a war, the Vema people have recruited children to become military weapons. Alice, at the bottom of her class, has been struggling with sleep lately. She keeps having this dream that wakes her in the middle of the night, and it makes her physically sick. Then, when an Imbra ship randomly attacks her high school, she must meet the enemy head-on—and... help him?
I've been sitting on this book since 2020
It feels so good to finally have it released! I'm so excited to see where this series takes me, and I hope you are too. The second book will be coming out next month, so watch out for it! You can already preorder it on Amazon and Smashwords if you can't wait.
If you'd like to be one of the people to read The Dream for FREE before it's released, message me on Facebook or Instagram.
The day has finally come!
Here's the cover for Underdogs: The Dream. This is the first book in the Underdogs series, releasing April 27. Preorder it now!
This anthology has been a lot of fun to be a part of. I love the authors that have included their wonderful stories and I’m excited for the world to finally see them. They are all so talented and wonderful.

What is NANOWRIMO?
Every November, people set out to write a whole novel (50k words) in one month.
I'm joining this year!
Instead of writing a new book, I'll be finishing one I've already started. Entering with 15k (of projected 75k) words written, I'm entering with When Dead Men Bleed 2 (title announced soon). Become my buddy on Nanowrimo.org (username: renesmeewolfe) and watch my progress here.
I've always had trouble with summaries. When Dead Men Bleed was a weird one I could never figure out...
“Fate has a way of changing yer plans, mate.”
I never asked fate to change me into a Bleeder. Zombism is all I knew, but now I’ll be hunted until they can find a way to kill me. If I hadn’t had gone down to that hum-fight, if I didn’t jump in the ring to satisfy my need for unprocessed human flesh, I'd still be accepted in society. I wouldn’t have to hide from the werewolves who can smell life on me, from the vampires who, with one drop of blood, know everything about me. Now here I am, with a gaggle of humans and human-sympathizers, trying to hide my new identity, all while trying my hardest to avoid learning about the girl who turned me.
But it’s near impossible when she’s the only one I trust.
When Dead Men Bleed is available for FREE on Kindle Unlimited. It also is available as a paperback and hardcover, AND has two special editions: the Whiteout and Limited Edition Covers/formatting. Sound interesting? Visit the links below.

The One-Hundred is now available as a paid story on Wattpad! I’m so very excited and feel honored :D
Make sure you go check it out. The next milestone for it is 3M reads, so fingers crossed!
I’ll be posting a lot about it, so make sure you check it out :)
Thanks so much to the Wattpad team and for everyone who has supported me along this journey. Because of Wattpad, I’ve had several amazing opportunities with The One-Hundred, When Dead Men Bleed, When the Sky Eats, Building Monsters, and even Katharsis. I’ve worked my butt off, and I’m so excited to see what I’ve been working towards coming to fruition.
So thank you. Thank you all. You are amazing. All of you.
Visit The One-Hundred here.
The One-Hundred will soon become a PAID STORY on Wattpad! I’m so excited. It’ll happen either this month (May) or the next (June), so stay tuned!
I’ve been waiting for them to approve it for a long time now. The One-Hundred is almost 7 years old and has 6 other books associated in the series (The One-Hundred is the only one that is part of the paid stories program, but you can buy the other ones at all major retailers). The One-Hundred was an instant success and gained traction very quickly here on Wattpad.
A few years ago, I started taking my books off of Wattpad—because I can’t make money if all of my books are free. Even though I can pump out 10k/day if I tried, it doesn’t mean I should give away all that effort for free.
I love writing and creating stories. I want to do it full time. That’s why I started the book boxes and my own store so I could sell directly to everyone (kweikel.com). I want to do this full time.
That being said, I want to give a BIG thank you to everyone’s support. Whether you’ve read The One-Hundred or one of my other books, thank you. I would have never gotten this far without you.
As a token of gratitude, use the code below when you visit my store (kweikel.com) to get a free ebook of your choice.
Yes, that’s any ebook from my website, including the bundles. Again, thank you all SO much. I love you all, my Merbaes. <3
There's one rule shared between the island's tribes: don't touch the water. When Cressa-la breaks this law, her world, and body, changes. Sure, change is normal... but when has growing scales been normal?

Every human baby is killed beneath the waves-with one exception: the one hundred thousandth is spared.
Among the spared, there are those chosen by the moon or sea, an ancient magic sweeping over them. They are called the One-Hundreds. When one of these gifted children rises, the darkness chases after her and hunts her down, wanting her for his own selfish desires while another light who's given up on love is drawn to her because of his past.
Unless Cressa-la can bring the darkness to his knees and fight the war raging inside of her, the world is doomed
Something looks different!
You’re right! Thank you for noticing. I have a few announcements to get through, so bear with me!
First thing’s first: When Dead Men Bleed is on Tales.
Click here to check it out!
Tales is an awesome interactive storytelling platform, and the people there are so nice and helpful. They put WDMB together and it looks SO AMAZING.
When Dead Men Bleed is a book I poured so much into. I have so much planned for the next books, and I’m so excited to share it with you guys. Seeing these characters come to life is an amazing feeling. I can’t get over Zeke and Mikey’s art. It’s stunning.
The team was super responsive and listened to everything I told them, and they really brought these creations to life. I will say my favorite character art is by far Etem’s. My goodness, he looks awesome! I have stuff planned for him, too, along with Cayla and Raquel. Everyone’s art is so amazing, especially Zeke and Mikey’s. They’re perfect. Exactly how I pictured them.
The Tales team is currently working on two of my other books, so I guess y’all will see those when I announce them!
Make sure you check out Tales and all their amazing stories.
Read more about it here.
It’s a monumental time for WDMB! I will be selling 25 copies of When Dead Men Bleed that includes the dust jacket below. They also have their own set of book boxes! But they are available by themselves if you don’t want the book box.
The Limited Edition also includes some artwork on the inside, and it’s all in color. It’s gorgeous, and features art by Reign Cattoni.
Tales isn’t the only thing that’s happening to WDMB.
I made a limited edition dust jacket! If you get the limited edition paperback or hardcover from my store, you get the dust jacket FREE! It includes artwork on the flip side of Zeke nurturing Mikey back to health.
They’re finally here! Check out what’s in them below!
They also have free US shipping, so yay for that! That reduced the price of the boxes by at least $15! I also wanted to add more stuff to the boxes, and I totally achieved that, now that I’m aware of how to do these boxes.
You can also add stuff to the box without upgrading completely to the next step. Want a standee? Add it to the box for a small fee. Want a poster? Add it too!
Limited Edition Boxes
These are just like the others, only there’s 25 available in TOTAL! 25 hardcovers and 25 paperbacks. These limited edition books are in color and feature some of the art inside.
These boxes automatically include a dust jacket cover. In it’s place, you get a poster of Zeke nursing Mikey back to health.
That’s all for now!
if you’re interested in reading WDMB free in exchange for a review, message me over on Instagram (kweikelofficial)! Or if you’d like to be a part of my Advanced Readers Army and get exclusive deals on book boxes and whatnot, let me know. I’d be happy to add you!
Thanks so much for reading and all your support. I hope you have a wonderful day!
